2016 Trax Oil Filter warning!

Please be advised that there are two possible oil filter applications for 2016 Trax models. All the application guides say use pf2257g. However when I did my first oil change on my 2016 Trax Midnight Edition LTZ I observed the oil filter from the factory had a "spring type" device connected to it. I spoke to the dealer and learned my Trax requires a pf2263g oil filter. If I had used the pf2257g it would fit, but NOT filter the oil! Make certain if you do your first oil change and notice a "spring type" device attached to your oil filter you replace it with pf2263g. I with try to attach a photo of the pf2263g.
